Copyright & copyleft

LIART strongly promotes open creation as it considers knowledge as a humanity common good. LIART believes that the best way to promote such common good is based on respect and recognition of creators and of the value of their creation. Hence, if 'free' means liberty, it should not be confused with 'no value'. Therefore, all distributed material in and through this web site is by default copyrighted, except those material that are explicitely distributed under an appropriate open-source license.

By default, any redistribution or reproduction of part or all of the contents in any form is prohibited without the prior written permission of the author, except in the case of brief quotations or certain noncommercial uses permitted by copyright law, if you acknowledge the website as the source of the material. You may not, except with our express written permission, distribute or commercially exploit the content. Nor may you transmit it or store it in any other website or other form of electronic retrieval system. Permission requests can be sent to the copyright owner.

Usage of the LIART name and logo

The LIART trademark and logo are owned by Thibaud Latour. LIART members adhering to the charter are granted a license to use the trademark under the terms of the membership charter. Of course, everyone is free to use the name and logo to promote or talk about LIART activities and organisation in a constructive fashion, provided that such usage does not:

  • make people believe that the communication is an "official" statement from LIART and engage LIART liability;
  • create any confusion whever the usage is made on the name of LIART;
  • damage LIART, its members and partners reputation;
  • exploit LIART image and products, directly or indirectly, for commercial purposes or any other purpose that may redirect the public towards statements, creations, activities and products that are not officialy organised by LIART and its member;
  • mislead the public about the LIART membership or partnership of the name and trademark user.

Responsibility and contractual independence of members

Because there is no other contractual relationship between LIART and its member other than the trademark license agreement, LIART members remain strictly independent. As a consequence, all statements, positions, creations, products and activities are provided by LIART members under their sole responsibility and under specific contractual agreements signed between members and third parties. Such individual responsibility of members includes, but is not limited to, all tax and regulatory obligations.

Working with LIART as a whole

Should LIART as a whole be involved contractually with a third party, such contract will be signed with the trademark owner in the name of LIART who will then subcontract the work with members.
